Bg,

1st don't run the car until you fix this. Fuel and hot engine components DON'T MIX !!!

You don't say where your leak is or if the puddle is on the ground or on top of your engine.

It may be your fuel injector o-rings. If the 1g is like my 2g the fuel rail gets pushed down on top of the fuel injectors and is sealed with orings. If the o-rings have had it then they could be leaking. It could also be a fuel line or where 2 lines meet at a connector.

Can you fix it? I have to take a few things off the top of my engine to get at my injectors. You don't say what engine you have so I don't know what you would need to remove.

Well, if you have a 3.5 make sure this recall was fixed:

Go here to see if your car has any outstanding recalls:

I have a '95 Intrepid that is doing the same thing. Its squirking fuel out of the top on one of teh injectors. Will Dodge still fix it even though it has 160K on it?

I am not the original owner so I don't have records to indicate if it was already done. I checked the recall page but it was not listed so those that mean its been done.

If the recall was manditory the dealer has to do it if it was never done.

Check with a dealer.

If its the 3.3, it could also be from the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail at the back drivers side. I had the same problem on my car about a month and a half ago. turns out it was just a failed o-ring on the regulator. My garage fixed it for free.

I believe it's been posted before that on a safety recall like the fuel rail one, there's no expiration and that the dealer *may* be obligated to perform it more than once if the problem recurs. Not sure about that, but I do know:

Chrysler site listed above will tell you if a particular recall has been recorded as done on your specific VIN. Doesn't matter how many miles are on car, or even if it's not the original engine; if the VIN check says recall not done, dealer will do it without question.
